Visible Light Communications wins the People’s Choice at IBM SmartCamp
IBM have been at the forefront of technical innovation for over 100 years, so they do know a thing about backing the right technology. They also know that not all of the great ideas will come from within their own ranks, so they run a series of events around the World called SmartCamp. SmartCamp is an exclusive event aimed at identifying early stage entrepreneurs who are developing business ventures that align with IBM’s Smarter Planet vision.
The IBM SmartCamp London event on 17th November was the climax to a rapid but multi-stage selection process. Five finalists were eventually lined up at the event in London, including VLC Ltd. I am therefore delighted to report that VLC won the live on-line vote by a large majority and were crowned “Peoples Choice”. Clearly the voting public saw the massive opportunities and recognised that this technology can change the world and create a Smarter Planet.
I would personally like to thank you if you voted for VLC, your vote did count.
